Not every day is going to be a good day.

It’s important to remember this, particularly if you’re a perfectionist. There will be times during your PhD when you lack motivation, are unproductive or feel like you’re slipping behind.

It’s inevitable that you’ll have times like this. What’s important is to recognise that it’s entirely normal to feel like this from time to time and that these feelings are temporary.

Don’t be too hard on yourself if you have a bad day or even a bad week. Just see it as part of the journey.

Good luck!
